A fight between two female students at the Khandlela High School close to Richards Bay went viral this week, with some viewers assuming that one of the girls had died in a violent brawl.
The high school student had in fact just fainted during the violent attack with the other student attempting to continue beating the unconscious girl but was restrained by onlookers.
“This is not true. We can confirm that the girl fainted, and is recovering at home,” said Kwazi Mthethwa, a spokesperson for the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education.
It is understood that an investigation it yet to be instituted regarding this school brawl.
Their classmates surround them, and watch the fight unfold, with one girl, wearing stockings, managing to push the other to ground and then stamp on her chest, slap and kick her.
The girl with stockings is eventually pulled away, and the pupil is seen lying unconscious on the floor.
Her classmates try to wake her up, when the video is cut.
A full report of the incident from the Khandlela High School is yet to be handed to the Education Department, Mthethwa revealed.
Said Mthethwa: “We have not yet been given a written report about the incident. Each incident must be reported to us so we can institute a formal investigation.”
